We get promo videos and come back to Renee, who sends us to a video package for Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens. Sami is in the Social Media Lounge now with Greg Hamilton. Sami says his biggest inspiration growing up was Bret Hart because of his tenacity and his matches. Sami isn't sure if he would ever trust Kevin Owens again because of their history. He says they're like brothers but probably never fought like this. They talk more about Owens before Greg sends us back to Mauro and Byron.
